A heavy or light object fell into the cup held between the thumb and the index finger of a sitting subject. The anticipatory muscle activity and the grip force applied to the cup depended on the object mass, whereas the temporal parameters, such as the moment of the start and the duration of muscle activity and the moment of the maximum grip force remained unchanged. Preliminary verbal information about the object mass sufficed for the predictive programming of adequate muscle activity and grip… CONTINUE READING
